Interactivos?'17 - Re-imagining movement in the city: citizen science for a sustainable present
Medialab-Prado is launching an open call for the submission of projects and research articles for the international collaborative prototyping seminar and workshop to be held in Madrid from 17 to 31 May 2017. As a theme, Interactivos?’17 suggests mobility in the city (living beings, material goods, pollutants, etc) on the intersection of three wide perspectives: citizen science, environmental sustainability and creativity and art with digital tools.
The workshop will be held from 17 to 31 May. Over the first two days there will be a seminar open to the public in which international experts and the authors of the selected articles will present their work. This will be a space in which to inspire and be inspired, to get to know others and to make yourself known. On these days the promoters of the selected projects will tell us what they aim to do in the workshop and everyone present will have a chance to meet each other.
Following the 2-day seminar the production workshop itself will begin, wherein promoters will develop the proposed prototypes, working hand in hand with collaborators. This workshop will be intensive and exciting: a space for exchange and experimentation. We will be helped along by coaches who will provide assistance and advice throughout the process.
The workshop will end with a public presentation of the resulting prototypes. The prototypes will then be included in an exhibition at Medialab-Prado.
